The Clifton house is visually accessible from the street, rather than hiding behind perimeter walls and gates – and it aims to contribute to the streetscape (specific attention has been paid to landscaping design at sidewalk level), in relation to the sidewalks and to the height of existing adjacent houses.
Malan Vorster Architecture Interior Design
Malan Vorster Architecture Interior Design (Pty) Ltd is an architecture practice with a strong focus on design that provides an integrated professional service encompassing master planning, architecture, interior architecture, construction supervision and interior design. The practice aspires to create works of architecture through inspiration, insight and integrity.
The firm was founded in 2013 by Pieter Malan, Jan-Heyn Vorster and Pieter Bruwer.
The practice and partners are registered with the South African Council for the Architectural Profession (SACAP), the South African Institute of Architects (SAIA), and the Cape Institute of Architects (CIA).
The architects have been involved with previous projects on this tree-rich property, and were commissioned to design a small contemporary house to compliment the existing collection of buildings – spatially organised around a modern interpretation of the Cape Werf.
